Dam, It's shifting westward.. bad news for me. I just went out to the barn, and the former pig pen and took down about 1/2 my cured and semi-cured tobacco. I tied it all in to hands and put it in my basement for further curing/ drying. I have visions of the 60 mph winds just ripping through my out building and carrying the tobacco all the way up to Don's place.. Yeah, I also went and bought 20 gallons of gas for the gas generator and 15 gallons of diesel for the diesel generator. Tomorrow I'm going to spend some time putting some "doors" in front of the open barn and figuring out what to do with the chickens.

As I would say "that sucks". Best of luck. Hopefully you won't get hit. We had way high winds here this summer in Oklahoma. No rain (well not much). Dry. Hot.

I ain't no expert, but I just watched the latest update and it looks like it's gonna hit the North and South Carolina border...maybe a little north of the border. Bad news for N.C., but good news for New England.

JBD,
Glad to hear things are safe for you. I had checked Colora, MD on the map Friday, and saw that the forecast cone was aiming at your back yard. It shifted a bit. Some parts of eastern PA received 6" of rain.

Here in southwest VA, where tropical storm-force winds were possible, I rushed to prime everything but the tips and bud bags, to avoid wind damage. All we got was a little gusty wind--nothing worrisome, and an occasional brief drizzle. Now it's blue skies and a dry, beautiful day.
